While this particular website is over the grand circuit it's commonly skipped due to its distance from another monuments. Skipping it's an error in judgment that favors those that make the journey right here with a lot less crowds than some other websites this impressive. The appearance of the monument is fairly much like Preah Khan's blue green hue and there are a few good carvings here too without the tumbled down look because of several amazing restoration work.

Unlike many of the temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park, this temple is not as frequented thus making it a quite enjoyable place to visit especially after a visit to a more highlighted temple. The style was simple and there isn’t much hiking and climbing to speak of. It was under some renovations and there were cats that were left to roam the facilities. It wasn’t a jaw dropping place but still, it felt good to walk around and take photos without a mass of people. If you are visiting Banteay Srei, you might as well visit this place as well.

This was perhaps my favorite of the dozen sites we visited. For most of our time, we and our guide were the only ones in the place. The temple is in remarkably good and complete condition, with several beautiful reliefs and great photo opportunities. There’s a peacefulness here that’s hard to describe and unique among the many temples of Angkor. Well worth a visit.

We visited the temple during the evening and it was practically devoid of visitors. It appears that this temple is usually left from the traveler circuit since it had been built in similar design as it is grander sister Angkor Wat. Nevertheless, it was a beneficial visit! This's among the most intact temples in Angkor and a must see in case you wish to immerse yourself in Angkorian heritage and structure!

Been to Cambodia 4 times now, after Angkor Wat and Bayon (which still get repeated visits) I decided to see the other temples. This and the old capital of Koh Ker were on my 3rd trip - well worth the visit as not too crowded and you can get some amazing photos that aren't full of other tourists (which is hard to get at Angkor and Bayon) Well worth a visit, as are all the temples around Siem Reap and further afar. Take care when going up near the Thai border, I went alone and was the only caucasian tourist. I felt safe, but was asked to pose for a million photos (blondes are novelties for monks up there I guess). Also stick to the marked tracks, there are uncleared mines around many forested areas up northern Cambodia.
